Grilled Salmon with Fava Beans

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 pounds fresh, wild salmon tail pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds unshelled fava bean pods
  • Truffle oil, to taste


  • Shell fava beans from the pods but leave the thick white skin over the beans. Place the beans in a saucepan, cover with water and boil for about 2-3 minutes until beans begin to soften. Drain beans in colander and let cool. Once cool, squeeze the beans out of their skins and set aside.
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Rub the salmon with olive oil, then season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Grill salmon skin side down for 4 minutes, flip salmon over and grill for 4 more minutes until firm and flaky. Remove from grill and cover loosely with foil.
  • Arrange salmon on plates. Sprinkle fava beans around the fish. Season lightly with salt and drizzle with truffle oil. Serve immediately
